Focusing Passed the Flare

Making a blog post from my phone is something I have zero experience with, so I apologize if it’s wonky. Unfortunately, for me, I’m experiencing the worst flare I remember having since MECFS onset and sitting up is being reserved solely for eating. But a promise is a promise, even if it’s only to myself, so I’m posting today, but just my doodles from the last week. My goal this month is to follow along with the world watercolor group prompts while integrating a teddy bear. Long term (when I’m well enough) I’d like to create a line of watercolor teddy bear cards so this is great practice in deciding what that little bear will look like. Fun fact about me: As I understand it, my name, Mishka, means ‘my little bear’ in Russian, a term of endearment. No I’m not Russian but I have a collection of teddy bears stored away because I just love them and never seemed to have outgrown that. 😁 Wishing you a day filled kindness.🌸

  1. Sorry to hear you are having a flare. When my Sjogren’s flares up I am completely incapacitated. It sucks to stay in bed when you want to get out and do things everyone else (who’s healthy) can! I hope your flare goes into remission soon.

    Hello! I’ve just come across your blog today and I think its absolutely fantastic. It’s so amazing that you share your experiences and so many people (I guess, unfortunately) can relate and find some common ground.
    I truly hope that your current flare-up subsides quickly and that you feel better, or as well as possible, soon. Take care. Soph x

    1. Thank you, Terri 🌻 It’s lifted a bit and I’m incredibly grateful for every moment that isn’t the worst of that flare. It was a force to reckon with. And thank you for your kind words about my doodles. They are a highlight of my day and it’s always nice to hear they bring smiles to other people too. Hoping today was or is kind to you 🌸

  3. if not for my phone I’d not be as connected as I am, to be here on an actual computer is a rare occurrence for me as sitting upright to long causes exhaustion and pain. I have a laptop it helps to do most things. The one thing I hate about using my phone is my typos, my hands don’t move so well and trying to type on a phone is the devil. I always feel like a fool when I make a comment and look back on it and realize it looks like I was drunk and typing. ( which drinking is one of the many things I have had to give up since being sick, never was a big drinker but now I drink the same way I pick those days that will make me pay, very carefully and few and far in between)

  4. I think maybe my last comment on here also went to your spam folder..?
    I’ll copy paste it here again now just in case 🙂

    Aww, my little bear. That’s so sweet. I think you’ve done incredibly well not just to post from your phone (not a clue how I’d do that, I can’t even remember my WP log in details) but to post at all. I’m so sorry you’re having such a tough time of things with the flare at the moment. Take things slow and easy and know we’ll all be thinking of you. Sending gentle hugs  ♥
    PS. Love the bears! I think the golden hue works really well, and where he’s holding the bunny rabbits hand, that’s incredibly sweet! 🙂

    1. I’ve been having WordPress posting issues too. They all come to my notifications that I know of, but I could be wrong 🙃 I kind of muddle along here with the bare minimum. In the ‘well-days’ I would have had it all figured out and fancy.😂 Now I’m okay to post, like, and reply. 😁

      The flare has let up a bit edging closer to baseline, but POTS has me in a chokehold. I can’t get my heart rate under control, but I’m monitoring and will go in if need be. Meanwhile my pharmacy is literally taking months to process the prescription the cardiologist gave me for that very issue. Trying to be patient 😬

      Hoping you are doing best as possible and Springtime brings you better health.🌸
